(Newser) – Madonna says she is supporting son Rocco Ritchie after reports surfaced Wednesday that the 16-year-old was arrested for possession of marijuana in London. Madonna released a statement to the AP Wednesday calling the September arrest "a family matter." She said: "I love my son very much. I will do whatever I can to give him the support that he needs, and I ask that you respect our privacy at this time." Rocco was the subject of a months-long custody dispute between Madonna and ex-husband Guy Ritchie. The couple divorced in 2008. They finally agreed in September to allow Rocco to continue living with his father in London. According to a report in the Sun newspaper, Rocco was arrested on Sept. 28.
